November 2012

FDB release 0.9.9 (a.k.a. almost final) is out:

New Features:
– Firebird ARRAY support.

Other changes:
– Cursor.execute() returns Self, so it could be used as iterator.
– Reading output from Services now uses more efficient method to get data from server.

Bugs Fixed:
– Fix: precision_cache in Connection works as intended.

This was supposed to be 1.0 final release, but I’ve decided to make 1.0
mode optimized. So 0.9.9 is feature complete driver, and 1.0 release
planed for January 2013 would contain only optimizations (and bug fixes
if needed).

best regards

Our second milestone on the road to Django 1.5 came today, with the
release of the first beta package. Please test it with the new Firebird driver
On Python 2.x and Python 3.x

Release notes are here

I have made a 32/64 bit ODBC Firebird Driver Matrix that could help you choose the right
Firebird odbc driver
Odbc driver must be configured in the corresponding driver admin
(32 bit odbc fb driver = 32 bit ODBC admin)
(64 bit odbc fb driver = 64 bit ODBC admin)

Starting ODBC Administrator can be done from the following dirs on 64 bit systems:
32bit version: \Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe
64bit versiom: \Windows\System32\odbcad32.exe

Firebird client (32 or 64 bit) can talk to any Firebird server (32 or 64 bit).
